Hair on Fire Alert: Donald Trump Spoke to Two Witnesses After Their Interviews with Mueller, Going So Far As to Ask Don McGahn If the Interviewers Had Been "Nice"

A reasonable recap of a very unreasonable media freakout.

Sexton quotes Jonathan Turley:

Law Professor Jonathan Turley was asked about the breaking story on Fox News this afternoon and agreed it was "problematic." "There have been serious problems in minding the line in these types of contacts," Turley said. He added, "Those types of slips are prolonging this investigation, fueling allegations when we still don't have a clear crime that is linked to the president."

So the bottom line here is that what Trump did isn't illegal but it's definitely unwise because it makes the Special Counsel focus in on him when, thus far, there's no evidence he’s done anything wrong.

You can watch the full video of the discussion with Turley at the link.

Turley also asks, in a different article, if Andrew McCabe could be charged with perjury the way Michael Flynn was.


According to [] reports, investigators believed that McCabe misled them about his approval of a leak to the media on the Clinton investigation. An alleged false or misleading statement by McCabe could rekindle questions about how the Justice Department addresses alleged false statements within its own ranks.

Ultimately, Inspector General Michael Horowitz has the authority to refer a matter to criminal investigators investigators in cases of false statements or other crimes. He can also refer matters to state bars in cases of professional misconduct by lawyers. He could do either in the matter of McCabe if investigators conclude that McCabe intentionally misled them. However, if history is any guide, McCabe is unlikely to find himself facing a charge.

It is a perceived luxury enjoyed by federal prosecutors that routinely charge others with even borderline false statements but rarely face such charges themselves. While most prosecutors adhere to the highest ethical standards, a minority of Justice Department lawyers have been accused of false or misleading statements in federal cases. However, they are virtually never charged with false statements by their colleagues. There is no such reluctance in using this easily charged crime against targets outside of the department.

Yes, that's as imagined it would be.

So what we have here are prosecutors looking to charge Trump for something that is not a crime while giving their Government Colleague a pass on something that actually is a crime.

I guess it's true what some are saying. Extend the fake investigation as long as possible, so that somehow, somewhere, Trump slips up and they can snag him then.

51 "So what we have here are prosecutors looking to charge Trump for something that is not a crime while giving their Government Colleague a pass on something that actually is a crime."

that summarizes Trump/Russia from the start.

But what is "problematic" as Turley says, is that the FBI knew from the start that Trump/Russia was fabricated by the DNC and ... ding ding ding by the FBI themselves. Rosenstein was involved in the FISA abuse, Mueller has deep ties and hired all Dem mafia men.

So we have the FBI running cover for Hillary, aka obstruction of justice ...
and cover is 'framing Trump by planting evidence' aka "a coup".

I am loving this phase.

With as much as TGEDJT knows how Mueller would love to indict him, I can't see this being a simple mistake. It more appears like a deliberate attempt to attract Mueller's slings and arrows by a guy who is confident there is no there, there.

66 Turley may be partially quoted there, but he still is shamefully acting dumb or holding his fire (probably) - but that's probably because he values his air time. The first part, about there being anything problematic about normal conversation with humans who happen to have been contacted by Mueller.


The absurdity and degradation of the US continues, surprisingly, to get worse after the Obama years - it had seemed it couldn't have become worse.


A combination of stupidity and/or shamelessness has been on histrionic display in the judiciary since PDT was inaugurated, and of course has been taken to new heights by Mueller.


Limbaugh had a decent, exasperated summary of how ridiculous the Mueller thing has become, based on reports of a new focus on a meeting a week before the inauguration.


It's kind of a second-order thing, but I think it's actually seriously worrisome how much deference and space has been given to this absurd thing from the get-go, but especially the last few months.


If people are *so* ignorant and *so* stupid that they gave more than 20 seconds' thought to the absurd concept behind the Mueller thing (and yes, tragically probably 30% are), they are beyond reach. No need to pander or tip-toe.


As in so many other areas, the refusal to engage in aggressive debunking and ridicule, even when reality and the political landscape make it a completely safe and even desperately needed reaction, is allowing the degradation of the US to get worse and worse.

So the bottom line here is that what Trump did isn't illegal but it's definitely unwise because it makes the Special Counsel focus in on him when, thus far, there's no evidence he's done anything wrong.


Why would that make Mueller focus on Trump?

93 Rosenstein remains the chief anomaly and inscrutable situation.


His creation of a special counsel in violation of DOJ's governing regs should be/have been the end of his public career. His indulgence of what long since been a parody of a witch-hunt is just making the rubble bounce.


And he's almost certainly dirty in the outrageous FISA abuse situation as well, having signed the last application in question.


Yet Sessions expresses satisfaction with him. At some point, all of this is going to have be clarified and explained.

Russia is our enemy and has been for a very long time. They don't care who our president is, if they were involved in any way in causing chaos with their 50 facebook ads, they are toasting with bathtub vodka in their dachas.

The democrats made up this whole RussiaRussiaRussia thing from whole cloth because firstly they think 'the right' is obsessed with hating on Russia, and secondly the democrats are angry that the Russians did not stay loyal to the democrats, what ingrates right?

On Thursday, UK officials said that nearly two dozen people were being treated in the suspected nerve agent attack on a former Russian spy and his daughter.

Sky News noted that three people remain in the hospital from the suspected attack including the former Russian spy Sergei Skripal, his daughter Yulia Skripal, and police sergeant Nick Bailey.

"Multiple people have been treated, around 21 people, including the man and the woman found on the bench," said Kier Pritchard who is the acting chief constable of Wiltshire Police. "A number of those have been through the hospital treatment process, they are having blood-tests, support and advice."

Some guys think paying for sex is beta nerd (not that I'd know from experience) but the point is, trump wasn't paying for sex as if he could only have sex if he paid stormy. No, he paid for sex to have the sex with a particular girl who was desirable. So, I'd say that's an alpha neutral move.

169 "any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation" is the open-ended language in the special counsel's mandate.


Not sure, but this sounds like standard boiler-plate (think about it). Although, in the context of special counsel appointments, one would think that even this standard language might be omitted or amended. Since open-ended, goal-oriented (as opposed to evidence and law-drive) "investigations" seem to be the rule with these dubious operations.

180 also, I love the idea that the left comes up with on how easy it is for a POTUS to impeach himself.

Day one in office, ask guys whose team he's on. oops, that's an impeachin'.

Day two, learn that Flynn is getting shafted by bizarre partisan hack, says he hopes he can be fair to flynn. oops, that's an impeachin'.

day three, talks to people who have talked to special counsel who, to be honest, is empaneled to investigate a national security issue. oops, that's an impeachin'.

and these are all impeachables without any possibility of counseling or course correction. Comey couldn't have said, "say POTUS, that's a bad thing you asked, I advise you to not ask" or "hmm, POTUS considered bad thing but chose to do good thing instead, let's still consider bad thing first and only"

sure. I guess it helps that Trump is the first president we've ever had and there's no history of this shit.

"any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation" is the open-ended language in the special counsel's mandate.


Not sure, but this sounds like standard boiler-plate (think about it). Although, in the context of special counsel appointments, one would think that even this standard language might be omitted or amended. Since open-ended, goal-oriented (as opposed to evidence and law-drive) "investigations" seem to be the rule with these dubious operations.


Posted by: rhomboid at March 08, 2018 02:55 PM (QDnY+)



The FBI investigation (Russian Collusion) is said to begin with Papadopolous, and accelerate with the Dossier and Page. Then Comey is fired. Mueller is appointed to continue "the investigation" and into "any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation." Papadopolous is perjury trapped. Flynn is perjury trapped. Dossier is roundly invalidated and might be the tree of poisonous fruit, and well as the Tree upon which the DNC corruptocrats hang. Mueller indicts Russian spammers, says no electoral effect and no Americans wittingly assisted, and he is fighting tooth an nail to prevent a court from delegitimizing his authority for a fishing expedition in Manafort's lawsuit. Gates pleads out.

We are at a logical end to the Mueller witch hunt, at which time it is appropriate for Sessions to unrecuse, spit upon his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats, like a chibi.

240 I think McCain's political allies and cronies in Arizona are starting to put some pressure on him to quit - if he hangs on until grim death takes him, then no one can plan on anything til the last minute, and that is probably going to favor an insurgent candidate. If he goes ahead and resigns, then the Governor gets to name a replacement and that person is going to have the advantages of an incumbent when the election comes around.

So they're telling McCain "Don't screw this up for us old man!!!"

The message would be
1. we can attack when we want to
2. we don't care, in fact, want you to know it was us
3. we don't think your reaction matters

But now it's finally coming out just who Alexander Downer is so they are trying to avoid that topic too. But they can't admit that they were spying on Trump and others long before 2016 for obvious reasons.

Because Russia (and Putin) don't give a fcvk. They wanted to send a message to former KGB/FSB that have settled in the Western countries that if you use your work for Russia to fcvk Russia over that there is a price to be paid. And will be paid.

And because Russia don't give a fcvk, they don't care if there is collateral damage. And the UK response has proved to Putin that there won't actually be a price to pay. So he will do it again.

Saw something last week where Mueller, when he ran the FBI and was going to fire someone, would take them to a public dinner, ask an innocent question like, "what was the color of the car you drove in college?"

"Red".

"No, it was not Red, it was Crimson, and you went to Harvard, so you know the difference between Red and Crimson, so you just lied to the head of the FBI!"
"If you contest your firing, I will bring perjury charges against you."

Mueller supposedly did this kind of shit all the time. He is as crooked as a Sierra Mountain back road.
